Robust and Resistant to Cleaning – Smart Sensors in Stainless Steel 316L

Photoelectronic Sensors for Harsh and Cleaning-Intensive Environments

Photoelectronic sensors in 2K format belong to the intelligent PNG//smart product series. Thanks to their robust stainless steel 316L housing, they can withstand intensive high-pressure cleaning up to 100 bar at temperatures up to 80 °C, aggressive cleaning agents, coolants and lubricants, as well as mechanical influences and corrosion. They are able to measure distances, detect objects and communicate intelligently via IO-Link. The miniature design, which can be easily integrated into any system, is available to users in six functional principles and three light sources.

The 2K Format in Use – Robust Exterior, Intelligent Interior

Detection of Biscuit Cookies

In the production of biscuit cookies, the objects must be transported and gripped between different processes on multi-lane conveyor belts. Thanks to the stainless steel 316L housing, the sensors are ideal for demanding cleaning processes at high temperatures.

Position Sensing of Material on Lathes

In CNC lathes, raw material is secured in clamping devices before the machining process begins. The robust stainless steel 316L housing (degree of protection IP69K) is resistant to aggressive coolants, lubricants or metal shavings generated during the turning process.

Position Check of Loading Carts in the Food Industry

Machines that can handle large quantities at once are used to crush and mix food in industrial production. Energetic reflex sensors in the ECOLAB-certified stainless steel housing and with IP69K degree of protection detect the exact position of the loading carts below the ejection point.

Leading Edge Detection of Soft Cheese

In the production of soft cheese, the wedge-shaped pieces of cheese are transported to the packing station on conveyor belts. Thanks to the robust stainless steel housing that is resistant to cleaning agents and has IP69K degree of protection, even high-pressure cleaning at up to 80 °C is possible.
